The celebration of the Bicentennial has 
excited the entire nation, and has touched the 
Gannon campus. The campus was decorated 
with red, white and blue fire hydrants, and the 
Library was decorated with several displays 
of the nation's state flags. The color guard 
dressed their best for their bicentennial 
salute, and the Pershing Rifle's displayed an 
outstanding rifle performance to the public. 

The entire college united in special ways 
to celebrate 1976 - America's 200th Birthday.

CAMPUS LIFE 






TOGETHERNESS 




The Gannon Community comes together 



32 





WORK STUDY 



One of the largest and ever-expanding programs at 
Gannon is the student work study service. The total com- 
pensation paid to the students has quadrupled over the 
last decade, and in the past year has jumped over one 
hundred thousand dollars. 

The program provides both off-campus and on- 
campus jobs for students, in coordination with their par- 
ticular educational interests. Recently, under the direc- 
torship of Mr. Treiber. they have expanded the program 
to aid students in finding jobs over the summer in their 
respective home towns. 



33 



COMMUTERS 



With the growth in Gannon's enrollment and the 
corresponding influx of dorm students, more and more 
upperclassmen are leaving the campus and com- 
muting. Apartment living has become the answer to 
Gannon's housing shortage. With it go the usual 
problems of cooking, cleaning, and transportation. 

Out of the growing concern of commuters with 
their own special problems has developed Gannon's 
first commuter organization. The organization was 
founded to solve the problems pertinent to commuters, 
such as better lounge facilities and parking. The 
organization has acquired new furniture for the lounge 
in Beyer and a commuter parking plan. It hopes to 
sponsor social activities to bring more commuters into 
the Gannon social scene.

DORM LIVING 



With Gannon's enrollment taking such a 
large jump these past few years, student liv- 
ing has also been rapidly changing and grow- 
ing. Finegan Hall is now being slowly taken 
over by women residents. They have taken 
possession of six of the eight floors at 
Finegan, and are pushing the male residents 
back into Wehrle Hall. 

The remodeled lounges, the new and 
larger washing facilities, and the creation of a 
Chaplain's room have given the dorms a new 
look. Finegan, along with Wehrle, are now 
sponsoring activities such as beer blasts, and 
participating in intramural events. 

With the new improved facilities and the 
expanded social activities, dorm living is un- 
ifying the Gannon Community.

STUDENT SENATE 



The Student Senate is responsible 
for representing the needs of the Gannon 
students to the college officials. They 
fulfill the students needs by sponsoring 
social activities, financing campus 
events, and participating in financial 
decisions of the college. 

This year the Student Senate 
presented the Broadway Musical, 
"Grease," the Halloween Mixer, and the 
annual social dances.

THE GANNON THEATER-A SMART, 



NEW LOOK 



The Gannon Theater is looking better than ever. 
Out front, it sports a brand new sign. But the real 
changes are inside. The theater has acquired new 
seats, a new paint job, refinished floors, and new 
carpeting. The walls are a rich brown with beautiful 
and colorful carpet to match. 

In this new setting, the Gannon Theater has 
produced four shows: Camino Real, The Mousetrap, 
Abelard & Heloise, and a new show by R. Michael 
Morris, Lip Service. 

The shows: all above standard for acting and 
entertaining.

MODEL U.N. 



This year's Model U.N. was the twenty-third in Gannon's history. 
The Chairwoman for the General Assembly this year was the second 
woman to be Head of the General Assembly, Debi Dubik (very ap- 
propriate since it was International Women's Year). The Model U.N.'s 
guest speaker for the 1976 activities was Dr. Noel Brown. And the 
General Assembly was expanded to include John Byran. director of the 
U.N. We Believe office in New York City. 

The topics chosen for discussion this year were: 

1. Women's Rights 

2. Challenge to South Africa's Membership 

3. Mid-East Crisis 

4. Demand For A New Economic Order

ORGANIZATIONS 



ALPHA KAPPA 
PSI 



Alpha Kappa Psi is a fraternity based on 
professionalism. The brothers of AKPsi aim 
toward professionalism in the marketing, bank- 
ing and business field. They are Gannon's only 
Business Fraternity, and are responsible for 
bringing guest speakers and business recruiters 
to the college. 

But the brothers of AKPsi are not always 
into serious business. Some of their more casual 
and relaxed moods include weekend parties, and 
the annual end of the year picnic.

ALPHA PHI 
DELTA 



The Alpha Phi Delta Social Fraternity, 
known to most of Gannon as the A.P.D.'s, are but 
a small but very active organization. From their 
tiny beginnings in 1957, they have grown into a 
very vital part of Gannon's Community. 

This year headed by Frank Scutella, they 
have sponsored the fifteenth annual spaghetti 
dinner, the second annual Halloween party for 
the children at the Gertrude Barber Center, and 
the fifth annual Spring Concert.

DELTA CHI 



This is the fifth anniversary 
of the Delta Chi. They sponsor 
yearly drives for the Red Cross 
to aid Crippled Children. They 
also have helped on Gannon's 
fund-raising telethon. This year 
they made a "Back the Knights" 
banner for the audi. They also 
started holding Open House to 
build better rapport with the 
neighborhood and the com- 
munity.

DELTA SIGMA 
PHI 



The Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity 
Brothers are known on campus for their con- 
tribution to Intra-mural sports and their 
lead role in the present-Intra-Fraternity- 
sponsored, 'Casino Night.' 

With campus enrollment on the in- 
crease, the Sigs will have no problem keep- 
ing the pledgers coming - and the house at 
second and Myrtle going strong.

PI KAPPA ALPHA 



Extensive involvement in campus and community affairs 
highlighted Pi Kappa Alpha's fourteenth year on Gannons cam- 
pus. They sponsor many community projects, such as a mixer to 
raise money for the March of Dimes. They also collected on cam- 
pus for the United Way and distributed cans for the American 
Cancer Society. As usual, they also put out the Gannon blotter. 
Pikes started a new project this year. Operation ident. It was 
carried out in conjunction with the Erie Police to protect Erie 
residents from burglary.

THE SHEIKS 



It seems the Sheik Fraternity has been relocating itself several times in the past 
few years - but that doesn't mean that the Sheik Fraternity is breaking apart. The 
Sheiks are tighter than ever. 

This year, they were located on sixth and Walnut - and the Sheik House was 
always friendly and open. The weekend Sheik parties were frequent, and so were the 
good times. 

The Sheiks involve themselves annually within the Erie Community by offering 
volunteer work for the blood drive, and the March of Dimes. 



71 






ST. MARK'S SEMINARY 



Contrary to popular belief that Seminarians are banished from a fun life - St. 
Mark's Seminarians live it up! The Seminarians are active not only religiously, but 
socially and athletically. 

This year. St. Mark's Seminary took tops in Intra-mural Basketball. Socially, the 
Seminarians are involved in volunteer work at local hospitals. And of course, all the 
Seminarians participate in religious functions, lectures, retreats, and prayer 
meetings.

F.B.'S 



The F.B.'s have been an active off-campus 
organization for the last seven years. As it states 
in the F.B. Constitution - 'it is our goal to strive 
for excellence in the academic field as well as on 
the intramural playing fields at Gannon'. Besides 
vocally backing the varsity teams at Gannon, the 
F.B.'s fielded winning intramural teams in every 
sport they participated in. But the F.B.'s are 
primarily a social club. Their Spring Weekend 
almost featured Blues Guitarist, J. J. Cale. And 
their second annual picnic at Shades Beach was 
open to all Gannon students and friends of the 
club.

THE TOADS A.C. 



The Toads are a new kind of fraternity. 
Organized within the Intramural programs, The 
Toads Athletic Club was shortened to "The Toads". 

Whatever their known as. they're a fun-loving 
good-time group. They organize themselves as they 
did their strategies in all Intra-mural activities. 

The Toad nest, located on ninth street, was a 
scene for many Toad gatherings. And whenever there 
were Toads, there were Toadettes.

B.I.F.C.: BENEFICIAL 



The Inter-Fraternity Council of Gannon College works to unite 
the campus fraternities. Members from each fraternity meet regularly 
to discuss fraternity and campus problems and events. The council 
also sponsors several events on campus. The yearly I.F.C. Casino

NICE WINTER FOR SKI CLUB 



The Gannon Ski Club enjoyed the snowy winter on the slopes of 
Peek n' Peak. The club offers discount rates for season passes, lifts 
passes, and skiing lessons. Bus transportation to the Peak is also 
provided by the club for its members. This year's beautiful winter kept 
all ski club members active. And all members were deserving of the 
party at the end of the skiing season. 

The club, open to all members of the Gannon community, is one of 
the more socially active clubs when the winter slump sets in. The ski 
club definitely makes the winters at Gannon more bearable.

TELETHON GIFTS BOUNTIFUL 



The 1976 Telethon raised more money than Gannon participants 
expected. The Alumni donations were generous and bountiful, and the 
amount of money donated to the college increased every day of the 
telethon. The telethon is set up to raise donations from Gannon Alum- 
ni. Volunteer workers call alumni all over the U.S. and ask for con- 
tributions. The results: amazing and enjoyable.

GANNON BASKETBALL TEAM:

DEDICATED AND DETERMINED

THE GANNON BASKETBALL TEAM 



102 



m 








"NCAA - GANNON ALL THE WAY!" This and other similar cheers were heard echo- 
ing throughout the hallowed halls of Gannon at the start of this basketball season. After 25-4 
and a trip to Evansville last year, and many of the same performers returning, the outlook 
was ecstatic, to put it mildly. On January 10, the Golden Ones were 10-1 and riding a 29- 
game home winning streak. However, after that, it was all downhill. They lost 7 of their next 
8 games, and all hopes of a return to Evansville were dashed. Final record: 16 - 11. 

In all the disastrous times, there were a few shining lights. Big Stan Sligh lived up to 
his pre-season billing. The Burly Junior from Alliquippa, Pa. averaged 17.1 points and 9.4 
rebounds per game. His shooting touch was amazing and he showed more moves than one 
would expect from someone 6 '7" and 245 pounds. 

Another junior, Fate Harris, was outstanding in every game. Despite his relatively 
small size for a college center, the 6 '5" New Yorker more than held his own under the boards, 
averaging 10.2 points per game. His shooting percentage was .531. 

With a roster loaded with Sophomores and Juniors, the future looks rosy for the Golden 
Ones next season. 



103 





GANNONS HOCKEY TEAM 

The incredible Gannon Hockey 
Team played their games smoothly 
and roughly. They were smooth 
skaters streaking across the ice - 
always in control and out for the puck 
and a goal. But they were rough 
players. No one underestimated this 
team and people that did learned to 
respect them. Rough on the ice - they 
played for blood and always gave the 
audience a crazy, entertaining and 
loud-cheering game.

SOCCER - THE WORLD'S MOST WIDELY PLAYED SPORT 









While relatively new at Gan- 
non, soccer has acheived a mild 
degree of success. This year's 5-7-1 
record doesn't tell the whole story. 
The Knights were in all but three of 
their games, with good defense and 
excellent ball-handling. The 
highlights of the season were a 2-0 
whitewash of Behrend College and a 
5-0 trouncing of Youngstown State 
in the Gannon version of Homecom-

There is always a reserved space in the back of 
every yearbook where the editor can write whatever 
thoughts reflect the mood and effort put into the fin- 
ished product. It is usually a mellow mood. A hi The com- 
plete product. 

It couldn't have been possible without Fred Mar- 
ino, the 1975-76 LANCE Advisor, or Mary Frances 
Straub, the 1974-75 LANCE editor. Their patience and 
guidance was desperately needed. Also thanks to Steve 
Drexler, Walter Paprocki, my dear friends Jack, Bev, 
Linda, Jane, and Bob and many other people who mor- 
ally helped me put this book together. 

So, thank you - all. It was rough. I appreciate it. 
And don't ever let me do this again. 

Your editor and friend, 
Diane E. Cantoni
